How long does UCLA count as a "quality win" when they lose to Washington State at home and won't even be ranked next week.
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
It's obvious we can no longer hang our tourney chances on beating those guys. Unfortunately, it's not where you start, it's where you finish.
They are a top 50 team. Beating such a team qualifies as a quality win. If they move back into the top 25, it'll be even better. (Without them, we still have two wins over top 25 teams - Duke and Illinois.)
